So much good stuff on TV right now. Please watch IO so I can talk about it here!
Last night I watched the rest of Russian Doll, and you guys, it’s so good. Funny and moving. I haven’t enjoyed a character as fun and complex as Nadia in maybe ever. Amy Poehler is one of the creators. Put this on your list, stat.
A beautiful, touching film titled The Child in Time is showing on Amazon Prime. It’s all about loss, and ultimately, hope. The unparalleled Benedict Cumberbatch stars with lovely Scottish actor Kelly Macdonald. I love the way she talks.
More obscure, but surprisingly lovely, is California Typewriter, a documentary about the history and resurgence of interest in the typewriter as an alternative to computer-based word processors. The film examines the beauty and process of making art, even the typewriter as art itself. Man, do I want a typewriter now. One of those little red Smith Coronas would be perfect. My birthday is in March!
This is the store featured in the documentary. When the movie begins, they don’t even have a web site.
I’m sorry, but it’s super-sunny in Florida today. Thank Thor.
